Linux "Ubuntu, once the darling of desktop Linux and the overwhelmingly popular choice for newcomers, may soon lose that role to Mint." I switched to Mint KDE, and have no intention of going back. By the way, KDE4 is finally good (don't hit me, Aaron) - fast, fluid, stable, pretty, and thanks to its versatility, a joy to use after a few hours of tweaking. Just... Please, unify Plasma and the regular widget style. This is insanity.

Yet more unity bashing?


If I switch back to KDE, it will be because konsole is better than gnome terminal, dolphin is better than Nautilus, and kwin is better than compiz.

So true. I have come to love Unity -- I've always been the Alt+F2-kind of guy; I simply loath looking for stuff in menus.

My only gripe with it is that it is barely configurable, and there are no activities, like in KDE (but even there, you cannot e.g. allow/disallow Nepomuk tags based on the current activity, so it also has some way to go).

Also, Gnome just cannot cut it on the application side; the KDE alternative is almost always better. Not to mention the locale settings cannot be customized, and you cannot set the locale only for the GUI.

I'll make it a unity clone with krunner serving as the dash and hud, though, and I will use kubuntu.

If you succeed, please let us know -- I'd just love a DE that's like Unity, but is not hold down by the Gnome legacy.
